Okay, I have a portfolio review I have to stand up and give in a couple of weeks at work. Since I'll be in front of a crowded room (30 or so ppl), I feel the need to start picking out an outfit like.. now. This is what I was thinking... I have these fabulous tomato red pumps with off-white stitching on them that I've had for a couple of years. Believe me, they are cute. (sorry no pics at the moment). I was thinking of doing a basic, black (maybe jersey knit?) dress. Just visualizing something not too dressy (we are pretty casual at work for the most part, but I like to dress it up a little on presentation days). It doesn't even have to be a dress, maybe skirt and top. Pants.. eh.. maybe, but I wear jeans everyday here, I thought I'd spruce it up a little. Any help or suggestions would be mucho appreciated!!!
what about a wrap dress - I was just given a black jersey wrap dress as a present & it is very versatile as its quite smart but can be dressed down too - over jeans or trousers. they are very feminine too & flattering to lots of different body shapes.

Yes, that's kind of what I've been looking for. Do you know where yours came from? I need something fitted since I'm on the thin side, but also wanted it to be subtle so the shoes would stand out. I figure if people are looking at my shoes instead of my face, then I'll be less nervous. :P
I'm tempted to wear jeans to work, kicked up with a nice shirt, jacket, shoes, and jewelry. In a professional environment (not corporate), do you think jeans worn in this way would be acceptable? Or should I stick to trousers and skirts?
